(a) Airframe misalignments.(b) Asymmetrical loading of the lifting and control surfaces at supersonic speeds.(c) Atmospheric disturbances, if the missile is made to fly close to the sea orground.(d) Air-launched missiles experience large torque disturbances due to the flowfieldin the vicinity of the aircraft and in addition, those due to the aircraft maneuverduring release of its missile
Reasons to ROLL
Excessive roll also results in cross coupling of guidance demands and improperimplementation due to inherent lag of servos.servo lag coupled with roll rate may result in loss of stability or result ininstability.Missiles using homing guidance have seekers which continuously track thetarget. Sudden roll occurs the orientation may change and target may be lost.Missiles using polarised or unidirectional warheads.Twist and Steer (polar control) requires strict roll position stabilisation.
